In the run-up to tonight’s Academy Awards, Hollywood’s A-list turned out in force for the Film Independent Spirit Awards which took place in Santa Monica last night. The occasion is a much less formal one than of the big event tonight and the red carpet dress code reflected this.
Twilight star Anna Kendrick attended the event wearing a patterned strapless dress from the new pre-fall collection by McQ. She teamed the look with an amazing pair of Brian Atwood sandals.
Michelle Williams chose a boyish look that was in stark contrast to her much girlier appearances. Michelle chose a short suit look from the pre-fall collection by Louis Vuitton teamed with her favourite quirky accessories label of choice Olympia Le-Tan.
Kate Beckinsale chose a seventies inspired outfit in a purple jumpsuit from the new fall collection by Diane Von Furstenberg teamed with Christian Louboutin heels. Jumpsuits aren’t easy to wear and this isn’t the most hideous attempt I’ve ever seen.
Lucy Liu looked chic in a monochrome tiered design by Roberto Cavalli. She teamed the dress with Giuseppe Zanotti wedges.
Zoe Saldana showed off her svelte figure in a pretty floral mini-dress from the spring 2012 collection by Balmain teamed with nude Brian Atwood pumps.
Finally Kirsten Dunst was my best dressed as this event, she chose a sexy black mini-dress by Dolce & Gabbana and teamed it with a white tuxedo jacket for an effortlessly stylish look.
